Three Analogue Channels:
To log any combination of:
Temperature Wind Direction
Humidity Soil Moisture Tension
Pressure Leaf Wetness
Light Voltage (DC)
Solar Energy Current (DC)
Qs_rbbr.gif (1971 bytes)

The three analog channels have identical characteristics. Each channel can operate in two modes, Absolute and Ratiometric. The mode of operation is determined by the probe type selected for that channel. The probe type is selected using the Channel and Probe Setup Tab of the Logger Control Screen in the Omnilog Software. Using this software, a different Probe can be selected for each Channel. Temperature (Thermister) , Pressure and Humidity probes are typically Ratiometric. Voltage and current inputs are Absolute.

Maximum readable input voltage in Ratiometric mode 3.6 Volts Nominal (see note)
Maximum readable input voltage in Absolute mode 2.048Volts
Maximum voltage input without damaging logger 5 Volts
Maximum current to be drawn by the combination of all three probes 5mA
Input Leakage Current 0.1uA

Note:The maximum readable voltage in ratiometric mode should be derived from the logger supply (Pin 1) and will therefore decrease over the life of the battery to a minimum of 2.7 Volts.

One Fast Pulse Digital Channel
To log:
Rainfall
Wind speed
Counter (up to 65535)
Flow
Frequency (up to 60 kHz)
Qs_rbbr.gif (1971 bytes)

The fast pulse input can be used in two modes, Counter or Frequency.
Counter mode is used for  functions such as rainfall.  Frequency Mode is used  for wind speed or flow sensors. The mode of operation is determined by the probe type selected for that channel. The probe type is selected using the Channel and Probe Setup Tab of the Logger Control Screen in the Omnilog Software.
